' Tanglemane '
A new serial play written for broadcasting by Tudur Watkins
2—'No Laughing Matter '
Production by Lorraine Davies
At an auction of pit ponies at Garth Farm young Davey Vaughan , on the spur of the moment, with only five shillings in his pocket, bids ten pounds and five shillings for a high-spirited black pony. Old Sam Cobble , the village shoemaker, backs him up against Simon Stark , a hard man who had hoped to get the animal for ten pounds.
That night Sam and Davey wonder how on earth to break the news to Mrs. Vaughan, Davey's widowed mother, who has as much as she can do to make ends meet. And though Davey vows to earn every penny himself to pay for Tanglemane, Mrs. Vaughan refuses to allow the pony into the back garden. When they are in the middle of a bitter argument, however, Simon Stark calls to see them.
